Can you believe it's been 21 years since Der Clown first aired?! (21 years, 4 months, to be exact.)
Why in the world did Der Clown end?
When Der Clown came to an end after 4 years in October 2001, million viewers tuned in to say goodbye to Max Zander (Sven Martinek). And since then, they have been itching for a reunion.
Would a Der Clown reunion disappoint people?
Der Clown aired from 1998-2001 and is considered one of the most influential TV shows ever on pop culture. Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But Martinek said he's not sure if Der Clown would work today. “I don't want to see old Max Zander,” he told a journalist (Martinek turned 55 in February). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” he added.
Still hoping for a Der Clown movie?
In a recent interview, Sven Martinek said he can't imagine a Der Clown reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”
What about a Der Clown reboot?
Recasting Der Clown for a modern reboot. Hollywood is known for remaking remakes of films or tv series and the studios might think it would be great to bring the story back with a new set of characters.
Be it in the form of a Der Clown reunion, a Der Clown movie, or a Der Clown reboot, if you had to start filming today, who would you cast in what role?
